Individuals with rare diseases form a minority of our society and receive little or no attention. Due to the lack of resources, they may not receive timely and accurate diagnosis which can cause serious complications including disability and death.
Rare Disorders Society (Singapore) a.k.a RDSS is a charity initiated by parents of children with LSD (Lysosomal Storage Disorder). Established in 2011, it aims to create awareness on various life threatening rare diseases.
The objectives are to improve the lives of patients and their families who have been diagnosed with a rare or ultra-rare disease. The aim is to raise the profile of rare diseases among the health authorities, health services and drug manufactures to improve research and development of orphan drugs. The charity understands the fight on a deep personal level and keep in mind the needs of our community at all times.
